Library Features: Primary Mic Captures
Primary mic captures (makes/models listed below) take a different approach in presentation to the standard formula. With these captures, positions are listed in an arbitrary sequential numbering scheme from 1 to 9, where 1 is the brightest and 9 is the darkest with a relatively uniform transition in between. The numbers do not correlate to any measure of distance, directly or indirectly. Mic options include:
Each mic option and position is offered in 4 different voicing options. These iterations consist of variation in mic placement, mic preamp, and hardware EQ treatment to suit different tone and timbre preferences for a multitude of guitar styles and requirements. Voicings are:
Auxiliary Mic Captures
(Available for all formats except Nebula)
(A) Back of Cab
(A) Far Field
(A) Mid Field
(A) Null to Cab
(B) Back of Cab
(B) Far Field
(B) Mid Field
(B) Null to Cab
Live n Loud Captures
Sometimes you don’t want the IR to give you a sound suitable for recording or to go to FOH (front of house), sometimes you want it to try to help you make your FRFR (full range, flat response) solution sound like a traditional guitar cabinet.
Enter the Live n Loud IR’s.
With the multitude of varying flavors of FRFR solutions, these will help you get where you’re going faster either used by themselves, or as an additional blend element in your IR mix recipe. The Live n Loud subset offers much fuller and smoother sounding captures to better suit high playback volumes and the inherent high frequency push that comes with it. Every primary mic has 4 entries in the Live n Loud set, each representing the voicings listed above.
Studio Pro Captures
The Studio Pro captures are a mind meld collaborative effort between Kevin Rowe (OwnHammer) and world renown engineer, producer, and song writer Kato Khandwala. These cabinet capture configurations can be heard on numerous gold and platinum selling albums, and are combined with the position and voicing alterations of the OwnHammer methodology for added flavor and diversity. 5 positions in the OwnHammer brighter to darker scheme with the same 4 voicings as the Primary Captures are provided in the following manners:
In total this adds up to 694 unique IR’s. With all the format options, the library contains a total of 7,792 files.
